BLM Seeks Public Input on Proposed El Paso Electric Arizona Interconnection Project
Amrad to Artesia Transmission Line Access Roads Permitting Environmental Assessment
This draft Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes the effects of the BLM issuing a proposed right-of-way grant amendment to El Paso Electric for construction, operation, maintenance, and termination of power line access roads. The amendment would allow El Paso Electric to enhance access to existing roads along a 345-kilovolt (kV) transmission line from a substation located near White Sands Missile Range (substation referred to as Amrad) to Artesia, New Mexico. The project will also allow for the safe operation and maintenance of the existing 345kV transmission line structures. The comment period for the project runs through August 29, 2016. Instructions for submitting comments are outlined in the Dear Reader Letter below. For information on the EA, please contact Realty Specialist Anthony Hom at 575-525-4331.
